Can you give some nutritional advice/nutritional elements for healthy infants?
Feeding too much food only increases the fat content of the body. To build strength and muscle mass, kids must dance, play, run, and exercise more. Encourage your kids to run/cycle/walk to school, and do rope skipping.
Indian food has more wheat and rice. We need to increase vegetables, fresh fruits, and dals.
Nutrition monitoring bureau says the majority of kids are malnourished. Weak kids get 25% less energy or carbohydrates, 25% less proteins and they get 90% less oil, needed to increase vitamin D, more hormones, the cell wall of all cells, etc.
So, it is important to include one spoon of oil in every feed. Increase oil seed intake, especially soya beans which is rich in protein and oil content. You can also roast soya beans and made into flour. The flour can be included in every meal for nutritional benefits.
As per WHO, developing countries like India, most kids are deficient in 5 important micronutrients - vitamin D, iodine, iron, folic acid, and B12. It's important to increase your folic acid intake by eating more green vegetables. Increase your iron intake by using iron vessels for cooking. Increase vitamin D by right exposure to sunlight.
